A revolutionary development in non-surgical facial rejuvenation, AQUAGOLD® Fine Touch is the first of its kind. This patented micro-channeling treatment produces a remarkable improvement in skin quality by delivering micro-doses of fillers, BOTOX, or serums that leave your facial skin glowing, dewy, and smooth, in a fast, pain-free treatment.

What is AQUAGOLD® Fine Touch?

This groundbreaking technology takes the concept of microneedling to the next level. The system creates tiny channels in the skin, each channel thinner than a human hair, through which bioactive compounds are delivered within the layers to plump, firm, and smooth skin, or to trigger skin regeneration. The extremely tiny needles deliver serums or BOTOX at a consistent depth and can cover a large surface area in a pain-free treatment.

How Does AQUAGOLD® Fine Touch Work?

If your facial skin has taken on a dry, rough, aged look, it is the result of the breakdown of natural collagen and elastin – the support structure of the skin. The AQUAGOLD® Fine Touch system uses tiny, 24-karat hollow gold needles that delivers BOTOX, dermal fillers, or nutrients in the skin layers to plump, firm, and smooth.

Tiny quantities of skin-rejuvenating products are delivered under the skin to boost hydration, tighten pore size, smooth and soften visible acne scars, or smooth fine lines appearing around the mouth, eyes, or on cheeks. The purpose of the AQUAGOLD® Fine Touch treatment is not to puncture the skin and trigger a healing response as is the goal of microneedling, but to create micro channels through which treatment products are delivered directly into the facial skin. Rather than injecting BOTOX or a dermal filler with a syringe, the product can be smoothly and evenly administered with the AQUAGOLD® Fine Touch system for a superior result, and a pain-free experience.

What are the Benefits of AQUAGOLD® Fine Touch?

  • Leaves your skin looking luminous and dewy.
  • Shrinks pores with micro-doses of BOTOX.
  • Smooths fine lines and wrinkles with micro-doses of dermal fillers.
  • Enhances results of laser skin resurfacing by delivering serums to trigger healing and regeneration of skin tissues.
  • Brightens skin with micro-doses of products that even skin tone.
  • Pain-free treatment.
  • 24-karat coated needles are biocompatible with skin, preventing irritation or an allergic response for a superior result, and limited redness after treatment, if any.

What is the Treatment Experience with AQUAGOLD® Fine Touch?

At Shapiro Aesthetic Plastic Surgery and Skin Klinic, you can experience a new level of skin renewal with a custom AQUAGOLD® Fine Touch treatment at our tranquil, luxury Skin Klinic. The first step in treatment is to identify the facial areas that need rejuvenation, whether lip lines, dull skin, loss of volume, lines, wrinkles, or discoloration, or a combination of skin issues.

Your facial skin can be treated quickly and effectively with the AQUAGOLD® Fine Touch system. Your appointment time will vary, based upon the number of issues you want addressed, but is typically in the range of just half an hour to complete. The beauty of the treatment is that you can arrive with lines, wrinkles, or creases, or skin that has lost its glow and leave our Skin Klinic with your facial skin rejuvenated, refreshed, smoothed and youthful.

What is the Cost of an AQUAGOLD® Fine Touch Treatment?

The combination of ingredients your skin demands varies from patient to patient, so the cost of an AQUAGOLD® Fine Touch treatment also varies. At our skincare clinic, we will be happy to discuss cost with you after a consultation to evaluate your skin and determine what will be necessary to treat your skin problems with the AQUAGOLD® Fine Touch system.

Is There Downtime After an AQUAGOLD® Fine Touch Treatment?

You are free to return to your usual day after treatment, as the tiny needles produce very little redness – they are smaller than a human hair and slip into the skin structure very easily. There is no recovery time associated with AQUAGOLD® Fine Touch treatments, and no aftercare requirements. Depending upon what products were injected with this state-of-the-art treatment, you will see full results appearing instantly, or within a few days to a week, as the hyaluronic acid starts to rehydrate your skin, or the BOTOX gets to work within the skin, allowing you to retain your natural facial expressiveness.
